To begin with I would like to give you a brief overview of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, IBD for short and even more so to give you a demonstration of a simple combined treatment using Multisoft software.
What are chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, the IBDs? Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
The first symptoms of inflammation of the bowel could be:
• Flatulence • Bloody stools with diarrhoea • Feeling of exhaustion • Stomach pains
Other symptoms include:
• Constipation • Anaemia • Weight loss • Skin rashes • Nausea
Many patients in your practice will certainly come to mind when you read these symptoms. This does not always mean we are dealing with IBD. However today we are working on the basis of more than 300,000 sufferers. Particular attention should be given if the first symptoms come as sudden attacks. This suggests a diagnosis of chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
